Euro Welcome To Lithuania!

Riga old town on the Daugava river, Latvia
Riga, Latvia; easy to combine with Tallinn, Estonia & Vilnius, Lithuania on a Baltic tour with only euros in your pocket.

On the 1st January 2015, Lithuania adopted the Euro, the final piece of the single currency jigsaw in the Baltic States. Although we are sad to say goodbye to the Lithuanian Litas, we welcome this unity between Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia as it is another jolly good reason that the Baltic States are the perfect combined tour, and you can even continue in ‘Euroland’ to Finland, or further…

Of course some of us will miss the confusing experience and excitement of a new, strange currency.  Look no further. If cross-border single currency is too tame for you, then why not visit Belarus, where your brain can deal with multi-million Belorussian ruble deals (£100 is about 1.7m BYR) although you’ll be hard pressed to spend that much!
